The Weekend Begins on a Bad Note [Jul. 24th, 2007|11:38 am]

I can NOT show up at my parents with my bangs this long...and the whole Shih-Tzu/Yorkie thing with the little barrette to keep them out of my eyes....well it's NOT a good look for me. Although I reserve the right to do so in the future when I'm a weird old bag lady, 'cause THEN it will look cool.

And my hair stylist is not answering the phone. So I have to haul myself over there on Thursday, the last chance before I leave for CT, to get him to just do it. (Something about me, in my unstylish t-shirt and shorts, dirty sneakers, un-styled, finger-combed (and not in a good way), no hair styling products hair, that makes them get me right in a chair and back the hell out before any of their chic clientele sees me.)

So I show up and auuughh! the salon is gone. Huge chain of very colorful expletives. Now what? This is worse than having your bra style discontinued -- that's just hours spent trying on every style bra in the store until you find one that tames them without looking like a Romanian torture device. A stylist --- sampling, that can be ugly.

But now I'm desperate. And if I trim them myself, it will look like I fell face first onto the paper shredder. Sideways.

So, off to the Hair Cuttery I go -- haven't been since I turned 40 and realized that maybe the reason I always looked like I had a $10 haircut was because I was only paying $10 for a haircut.

But this has to be done -- and it's just a bang trim, I mean, make what I've got just a little bit shorter. But the little Asian ladies at my local hair cuttery always struggle with my German Hair -- I mean, you can tell it not to invade Poland, but next thing you know, sproing, there it goes, cowlicking through Austria, heading for Hungary...

Sure enough...I look like Moe.

I look like Moe.

That happened to me - fortunately they were just renovating and were back in a month. But there was no sign on the front door and that had me freaking out.

Try calling their number and see if it has been changed. That way, if they moved, you can find out where and/or try to find the hairstylist you like.

I shouldn't laugh but I so know what you mean.

btw - my maiden name means something like go fast without brakes in German so I understand the 'hey that was fun let's go invade Russia during the winter' attitude.

ROFL !

Actually I was hoping hubby would chime in with the 'actual' translation(being he's anal that way) but maybe his call in sick day really *was* because he was sick.

FTR my maiden name is Rouse.

Rouse in German means "rouse" in English.

Closely related to "arouse".

My headresser will take "special" appointments if I call her...She lives in Columbia and you'd have to go to her condo as she only works on Sundays :-) If you want, I can send you her phone number :-)I'm back to my signature style and color and I too, like you, have GERMAN hair!!! Go figure!!!

btw - Heather ROCKS !

My German hair says YES to being treated like the fiercely independent spiteful stuff it really is.

Let's just say she picked up the razor and it laid down and purred.

With the challenged follicles that I live with, I depend on the "no hair no bangs" look.
